Amuse and Educate

At church there was a display of free religious education books, videos, etc. Just for fun Kathy picked up a booklet entitled The Beverly Hillbillies Bible Study. It's published by--who else?--The Entertainment Ministry. They also have Mayberry, The Lucy Show, The Dick Van Dyke Show, and Gilligan's Island. Apparently you watch snippets of the show and then answer bible-related questions. As they relate to a TV show. There's a lot more fantasy involved than I think most people realize.

Imagine if they used a reality-based TV show.

"Deal or no deal?"

"Howie, I just know the answer to my prayers is in this case. NO DEAL!"

There's nothing like witnessing a soul-crushing experience televised for everyone's entertainment and then figuring out what biblical lesson applies to it.
